@inproceedings{Giacomelli2021InterplayOK, title={Interplay of Kelvin-Helmholtz and superradiant instabilities of an array of quantized vortices in a two-dimensional Bose--Einstein condensate}, author={L. Giacomelli and Iacopo Carusotto}, year={2021} }

We investigate the various physical mechanisms that underlie the dynamical instability of a quantized vortex array at the interface between two counter-propagating superﬂows in a two-dimensional Bose–Einstein condensate. Instabilities of markedly different nature are found to dominate in different ﬂow velocity regimes. For moderate velocities where the two ﬂows are subsonic, the vortex lattice displays a quantized version of the hydrodynamic Kelvin–Helmholtz instability (KHI), with the vortices…
